Company Tax Registration FAQs

What happens if I've made a mistake on my application?

If your form is incomplete or contains any errors, a member from our friendly team will contact you to obtain the correct information. Only once all relevant sections of the form are accurate will it be sent to HMRC.

Why register for VAT?

If your business sells or provides taxable supplies to another business or non-business customer, you must be registered to charge Value Added Tax (VAT) when your turnover exceeds the VAT threshold of £81,000 within 12 months.

If you are not VAT registered, you are not able to reclaim any VAT charges that you pay when you purchase goods or services from another VAT registered business.

When completing the form, which address should I use as my business address?

The business address refers to your actual trading address and cannot be our address (20-22 Wenlock Road, N1), even if you currently have a registered office service with us.

What happens once my VAT application has been submitted to HMRC?

Once the application has been submitted to HMRC, it takes around 4-6 weeks to be processed. Once your application has been successful, you will receive a VAT registration certificate with your VAT registration number.

Can all companies use the VAT assistance service?

The VAT assistance service is for companies Limited (Ltd) by shares. Unfortunately, we cannot complete the VAT registration for other types of companies such as LLPs.

Why register for PAYE?

If you intend to hire employees, including yourself, you will need to register as an employer with HMRC. The system used by HMRC is referred to as 'Pay As You Earn' (PAYE) and collects Income Tax and National Insurance Contributions (NICs) from eligible employees.

What information is needed from me to register for PAYE?

When filling out the online form, you will need to provide your contact details as well as the following information:

  • Business trading address
  • Description of what the company does
  • The number of employees (can be just the director)
  • When the first pay day will be
  • Whether the pay will come to more than £390 per month
  • If they are sub-contractors
  • The director's name and National Insurance number

How does the PAYE application process work?

Once you have completed our online form and it has been approved by us, we will submit an application to HMRC on your behalf. Then, once you've been successfully registered as an employer by HMRC, you'll receive a letter in the post with your PAYE reference as well as a link for a guide to help get you started with reporting payroll.
